will introduce matt watts - sacramento, to discuss legislative needs in your packet. at the federal level at the very last hour, the night before the turn of the year, congress passed several pieces of legislation that are going to allow for continuing operations of the federal government. the debt ceiling and sequestration for the debt ceiling, congressionally established limit on the amount of the public debt reached in the final days of 2012, and through emergency borrowing measures the treasury was able to continue funding the federal government. these issues should be revisited again probably in the next week. it's been quiet in dc this week. the sequestration act will allow federal obligations possibly is in this mid-february. the sequestration that was supposed to take effect on january 1 prevented cats to all discretionary funding programs. the highway trust fund that primarily funds the highway and transit account is protected, would not have been subjected to the sequestration got. the new starts funding programs, new source of funding for the central suburb projec
, just san diego and i did speak with the folks in sacramento and there is legislation that will address bottle bill -- actually once a year or couple of years that they do a bottle bill fix and adjust things and there is another bill planned for this life-threateningive session in january. so i mean the timing is right in terms of if there were some recommendations coming out of san francisco, there is a vehicle for us to talk to the folks up there. >> great. >> this convenience zone, is that unique to california? >> it is. it's very unusual. i am from the east coast and grew up with the bottle bill there and it's very different. it's very successful here and they are talking about using it as a national model. there is an effort to try to create more jobs by creating more recycling infrastructure. because many states don't have anything at all and the stuff is just thrown out all over the place if you are driving across the country. they are looking at this particular law as a value and it's funny we're the real odd duck in california because of our density. there is no place els
an interaction with our colleges and universities and other small groups. send them to sacramento. we don't do this. some of our advocates all these years have been going to sacramento. the processes very convoluted. it's good that we have jerry brown there. he has balance this budget. the board of supervisors, the city, the legislative branch, in the executive branch in 1996, willi brown took the city administrator's position and join it to the executive branch. let's talk about the legislative branch. it is incumbent for you to send young people to sacramento so they know the process, the convoluted process much as we have a convoluted process here at city hall. thank you very much. >> is there any additional public comments? seeing none, commissioner -- >> i have a question to mr. watts. you mentioned ab 8 and sb 11 extend the carl moyer program. would you recommending that we take a support position? >> the two bills 8 an d sb 11 they are identical measures. >> i move that amendment to support ab8 and sb 11. >> is there second to that motion? to forward this to the board authority? >>
as i mentioned we have not just a new two-year session, but a real historical moment in sacramento with two-thirds democrats, as well as a democratic governor. it's an opportunity that the majority party is mindful of not squandering and with regards to initiatives that we'll see this year, i think the vlf is something that is being talked about as another opportunity for transportation funding at the state level, something that previous administrations have not wanted to look at in terms of bringing that state vehicle license fee back up to historical levels. if that happens, i think we in san francisco have to be mindful that we uniquely already have that authority and to the extent that the state chooses to embrace that authority, where do we stand? since conversations are underway in san francisco about how to spend our own vlf, i think we need to take a strategic, somewhat defensive position to make sure that we don't lose that to the state's interest, valid as it is, to invest at the state level. the governor released his budget, which most of you know, just recently. it's pr
to sacramento. have you all talked to recology about what their view of this whole thing is? >> they understand the problem. they run into the largest buybacks, one at pier 96 on the port and the one at tunnel road and they used to operate seven or eight other ones. they want to see the material handled. it's sort of there is an old garbage guy adage that you want to get your hands on everything and keep it, but they understand that their major role is providing the kind of background coverage for everything. as you were pointing out earlier, this is valuable material that picks up and moves on it's own. >> right. >> and that could mean an advantage for us in terms of that material not having to be paid for and carried by the very expensive systems. >> it would be a collaboration where you create a multi-tiered distribution system, where it ends up ultimately there, but someone makes something at each step of the way? >> actually, they said they are open to being a collector for a more kind of mobile system or a smaller subset. when you mentioned technology, i had forgotten to bring up that
that way. and this isn't just about getting 301 sacramento and 303 sacramento wrong. it's bigger than that. radio services just extrude up royally. and i'm going back to my map. radius services determined the midpoint of the assessor's block when the law is the midpoint of the block face. and within the public works code, it distinguishes between a block face and an assessor's block. "assessor's block" is perhaps could be three-block faces as in this case. and it's used multiple times in the public works code. amid the block face where the star is. and all of these businesses did not receive notice. so dpw testified a couple of months ago that 101 2nd street is within a 300' radius. i want to ask dpw did anyone at 101 2nd street receive notice? if they did not, notice was not served properly. the second point is the 300' radius. the ordinance use the word "radius." the order itself says there are no like foods within a 300' radius. radius is the proper measurement and dpw is going to get up here and say oh, no, we're going use walking distance and we can't determine what a 300' radius, w
not disagreed that at least two locations, 301 sacramento street and 303 south sacramento street did not receive notice of the permit. and they sort of tried to distinguish between the notice of the permit and the notice of an appeal and i think those are two very separate issues. the public works code says that businesses within a 300' radius are entitled to receive notice of the permit. what is the use of giving a notice of appeal after everything is said and done? the second issue is i believe due to radius services mistake, the whole block was missed floatfication area and that is because radio services calculates notice the block using the assessor's block as opposed to what is stated in the public works code, which is the mid-point of the block face. can i just go to this overhead real quickly? okay. so where the x is where expresso subito did the 300' radius, but where the little star is the actual block face. so all the businesses down here were not notified and one business that dpw testified to was 101 2nd street and no one from that building received notice. the second point is t
benefits that people in sacramento are often accustomed to. thank you. >> thank you, sir. next i have miss deborah benedict. : >> hi. deborah benedict, again with senior and disability action and i will also mention that i am a member of californians for disability rights, which is a statewide organization that does keep track of the lawsuits and actions that are going on statewide. so it might behoove the mayor's office on disability to join the californians for disability rights, because there are plenty of emails that i get blasted about that kind of information. one of the things that i wanted to share about my experience of being in managed care at this point was my managed care provider, which is lion martin health care, claimed that they were trying to improve patient experience and they cut out the ability to make appointments on a voicemail or that was connected to the company. so now you get put into a phone queue. and i don't know how many people are familiar with being endlessly in loops of phone queues, but it's extremely frustrating when you are sick or need to make an app
